It’s no secret that health and wellbeing is one of the most dominant factors influencing modern building design. One element that’s generated particular attention recently is indoor air quality. Here, Tony Walker, Technical Specification Controller at PPG Architectural Coatings, explains what’s driving the trend and what architects and designers can do to bring a breath of fresh air to their buildings.

With over 15 years of HIU supply under their belts, Evinox has unveiled their latest range of ModuSat® XR ‘Smart’ Heat Interface Units, which provide M&E Contractors and Consulting Engineers with a “whole lot more” for a “whole lot less” due to the myriad of hidden extras.

Consort Claudgen has launched their first BIM (Building Information Modelling) objects which include panel heaters, fan heaters, recessed ceiling heaters and air curtains. Architects and specifiers can now access the BIM models for their BIM projects from Consort Claudgen’s website or the NBS National BIM Library.

BoilerMag has opened a brand new testing facility to carry out sophisticated filtration analysis for central heating system filters.

The UK's leading innovator in underfloor heating will be showcasing its fullrange of systems and ancillary products, together with its heat pumps and other low energy technologies at the this year's FuturebuIld, from the 5th – 7th March at ExCel in London’s Docklands.

While the earliest applications of underfloor heating can be traced back to 5000 BC Korea, most of the major developments resulting in the systems we know and use today happened in the last 100 years, says Ross Verity, Managing Director of ForceDry.

For any residential building project, it would be fair to say that time saved on site is hugely beneficial for developers, contractors and housing associations alike, helping to reduce project costs and enabling residents to occupy properties as quickly as possible. With this in mind, Evinox Energy has introduced remote commissioning and warranty validation for their ModuSat heat interface units (HIUs), which can significantly reduce the cost of commissioning and time spent on site by engineers manually checking and adjusting settings.

Warm Air, Radiant and Heating Products are now affected by European Regulations.

Heating, cooling and plumbing specialist, Uponor, has provided their MLC (multi-layer composite) pipe for use in bathroom pods on phase 2 of the Lillie Square development in London’s Earls Court.
